Expert Reply:

For the 1993 Jeep Wrangler, we only have base plate options (that connect to the tow bar) if the Jeep has a U-channel bumper. You can use base plates # 1409-3. These base plates are compatible with your Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar, # RM-525.

In addition to the base plates and tow bar, you will also need safety cables like # RM-643, a lighting solution, and a supplemental braking system.

For lighting there are several options. If you will not be towing often then I recommend a magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A. If you will be towing often then a more permanent solution like # RM-154 would be the way to go.

Most states now require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest to set up and use is the proportional Even Brake, # RM-9400, that applies the vehicle in proportion to how much the towing vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

I have included some helpful links on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the Jeep owners manual for additional information on recreational towing of the vehicle. You will also need to make sure the Suburban has the towing capacity to flat tow the Jeep.
